  • Does Tachyon work with real weapons?

    NO. Tachyon is built only for airsoft weapons. It will NOT work with any real firearm, and will most likely damage or destroy the device. Do not try this.

  • Is it compatible with GBBRs or other non-electric weapon types?

    Yes, Tachyon works with any airsoft rifle, however an external 9-volt battery will be requred if your weapon doesn't have one built-in.

  • How do I install the device? Do I need to disassemble my weapon?

    Tachyon mounts on any standard picatinny rail in any orientation (the display image can be rotated by increments of 90 degrees).

    Weapon disassembly is not required, although slight modifications may be needed if you wish to hide the cables that run off the device.
